NHL Western Conference Preview: Blackhawks vs Canucks
Winners of just three of their last ten contests, Chicago has fallen six points behind St. Louis and Dallas in the fight for first in the Central Division. This is an important match as it’s the game in hand Blackhawks hold on the Blues and Stars and would pull them within four points of the top spot in the Western Conference. Chicago won 4-1 at the Saddledome in Calgary last night.
Officially eliminated from the Stanley Cup chase in the West, the Canucks are playing out the string on what has been a long season in Vancouver. Whether on purpose our not, a tank is in full bloom in BC as the Canucks have lost seven straight games by a combined 22-5 margin. Though rarely potent, the 'Nucks offense disappeared while getting shutout in three of those games.

NHL Central vs Atlantic Division Prices: Blackhawks are Road Favorites Tonight
Given their recent form, we are surprised by the Blackhawks steep road favorite price. Especially since Chicago is playing on back-to-back nights with travel. While the Flames didn’t put up much of fight, the Hawks flew into Vancouver late and need to get right back it. However, Chicago is 3-2 in the second of two straight games the five times that dynamic has come into play recently.
Corey Crawford is still injured so backup Scott Darling (8-7-3 GAA 2.51) faces Canucks starter Ryan Miller (22-9 GAA 2.63) in the net-minding matchup. Chicago (2.77 GPG) has lots of firepower on offense while Vancouver (2.23 GPG) has very little. It’s a road game so we aren’t going to give away pucks here. Instead, back the Blackhawks with a ten-unit wager on the Bet365 money line odds.
